Unefoisdansmavie, with Ricky Macomber Jr. at the lines, re-established the track record for older trotting mares with a 1:53.2 performance in the featured event of the evening on Thursday (June 12) at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. Staging a big rally late in the lane, Unefoisdansmavie was able to track down Lady Blitz and Verlin Yoder, who established a new track record with a 1:54 score last week. The 1:53.2 victory marks a seasonal best record for the 7-year-old mare and the second track record that has been lowered over Hoosier Park’s seven-eighths-mile oval in 2014.
Leaving from post four in the abbreviated field of seven, Unefoisdansmavie left alertly to get position from post four and reached the front through an opening panel in :27.3. Her lead would be short lived as Lady Blitz used her customary front-running tactics and took over at the second station in :56.2. Unefoisdansmavie was content to sit in the pocket while Easter Teka and Peter Wrenn followed intently in third.
Lady Blitz, looking strong on the front, continued to call the shots around the three-quarter clocking in 1:25.2 but Walked Into Heaven and Trace Tetrick began to apply pressure to their outside. As the field turned for home, Macomber gave Unefoisdansmavie the green light from the pocket and she used a :27.4 final panel to finish a length in front of the field. Lady Blitz finished a game second while Easter Teka trotted evenly for third. As the public’s second choice, Unefoisdansmavie returned $4.80 at the windows to her backers.
Trained by Hoosier Park’s leading conditioner, Ron Burke, Unefoisdansmavie notched her 28th win from 93 lifetime outings. Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt III own the 6-year-old daughter of Revenue S-Peace To The World who now boasts $433,942 in career earnings.
Live racing at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino continues on Friday (June 12) with a 14-race card highlighted by the $22,000 Fillies and Mares Invitational Pace. With a daily post time of 5:15 p.m., the live racing schedule will follow a Tuesday through Saturday schedule and be conducted through Nov. 15.
